    I was told by Linksys when I bought the equipment that it was indeed compatible.

    Their website lists the WRT54G as a compatible product with the WAPPOE.

    Linksys online tech support chat also claims it is compatible:

    However, after having a few problems, and doing quite a bit of research, I believe only the very first WRT54G is compatible with the WAPPOE. Every version after v1 needs 12v, which is only supplied by the WAPPOE12.

    I just got an email from a sales person at Cisco:

    I just received an email from Linksys technical support:

    It seems as though I can't get a straight answer from anyone at Linksys. Does anyone in this forum use Linksys POE products and have any insight into this?

    My feeling is that I need the WAPPOE12, but since I did not design the routers, I don't feel I should be dictating what the power requirements are.

    After showing the Cisco salesperson the email from Linksys technical support, I received this response:

    I'm starting to get the feeling Linksys doesn't know their own products or how to support them.
